One of the challenges many moms face is returning to the workforce after they’ve had children. Some decide to do it right away, others wait a year and still others wait until their kids are in school. It’s a very personal and at times very difficult decision that is different for every family. Whenever it happens, returning to work, either in the same field or by starting your own business, provides a unique set of challenges for women. How do you get started? How do you reconnect with your peers? How do you find them in the first place?
The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) is a group whose goal is to help professional women overcome those challenges. This nationwide organization holds meetings and events across the country through local chapters and gives women the chance to meet professionals both online and in person to support and encourage their professional success.
On November 18th the NAPW is hosting the First Annual Midwest Conference for Women to gather professional women in the Midwest and help them learn how to “re-brand, refresh and reconnect” within their work life. If you’re getting back into the workforce or learning how to work your own business, then check out this conference and the NAPW site for information about local opportunities to restart your career path.
